The Most Amazing Outlander Kindle Case Ever!

Whilst I adore reading paper books I have to admit that I rarely buy them these days. This is partly due to the convienience of being able to instantly download ebooks onto my Kindle and partly because I don't want to store hundreds of "real" books in the house.  In fact the only paper books I have kept is my inceasingly ragged looking Outlander collection.  I do miss having  a real bookcase though!

However, I have to admit that I simply fell in love with this Outlander Kindle case I saw on Zazzle today! I'm not sure if I'll actually buy one myself but I just thought I'd share it for any Kindle owning Outlander fans!

Outlander Fans Increase!

It's only natural that as the upcoming TV series approaches there are more and more people who are suddenly interested in the Outlander books.  I'm sure you've noticed that all over the internet there suddenly seems to be a 1000 fold increase in Outlander fans! You only have to go on Pinterest and search for boards with the word "Outlander" in them to see just how many are being added each day ... it's impossible to keep up with them all!  I think it's a great indication just how popular the books are and how fanatical we all are as well!

New Diana Gabaldon Story "Virgins" Released 3rd December!

Dangerous Women is an anthology put together by author George R. R. Martin of "Game of Thrones" fame and included in this book is a "short" story by Diana Gabaldon. What with all the frenzy regarding the TV Show and the change in release date for "Written in My Hearts Own Blood" the fact that we are getting a brand new story in less than two weeks seems to have fallen by the wayside!

For those of you who don't know the story is simply called "Virgins" and in it we see a nineteen year old Jamie Fraser and his best bud Ian Murray in the French army. I couldn't tell you who the dangerous woman from the story is as I'm proud to say I've read none of the spoilers! 

In addition to the Diana Gabaldon story the book also includes stories from author such as Brandon Sanderson, Joe Abercrombie, Sherilynn Kenyon, Lawrence Block, Carrie Vaughn,  S. M. Stirling, Sharon Kay Penman, and many others.

First Official Photographs of Sam Heughan As Jamie Fraser!

Starz have released this photograph of the delectable actor Sam Heughan in full Jamie costume! The first thing that springs to my mind is that he looks scruffy! I'm actually really pleased with that because it shows that we are going to be seeing something which is realistic and not a cookie cutter show but a nitty gritty show which reflects the books. The second thing I noticed is that he looked really annoyed with someone and I certainly wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that expression.  I'm wondering at what point in the story this scene takes place as he seems to be at Lallybroch in the fields.

Grant O'Rouke cast as Rupert (Unconfirmed)

Although nothing has been confirmed by Starz about Grant O'Rouke being cast in the role of Rupert I think it's safe to say that it's true!  Firstly Graham McTavish made a comment on Twitter (which was subsequently deleted) about how he was enjoying working with Grant O'Rouke amongst others and secondly a fan made an image public of herself alongside Graham McTavish right in front of a board with the photographs of all the cast members. Under the image of Grant O'Rouke was apparently the name Rupert! 

I think Graham McTavish will probably not be in the good books of Starz this week! 

Anyhow Grant isn't a well known actor but has been in a handful of well known shows according to his imdb page. He's Scottish so that's an advantage and I can already see him asking Jamie if he bled!
